Directions (continued)

  • raisins and cinnamon; sprinkle down the center third of each
  • rectangle. Fold one long side of dough over filling, then fold other
  • long side of dough over, forming a 16-in. x 2-in. rectangle. Pat
  • lightly to flatten.
  • Cut each rectangle into four 4-in. rolls. Line a baking sheet with
  • foil and grease the foil. Place rolls, seam side down, 3 in. apart
  • on foil. With a sharp knife, cut five strips two-thirds of the way
  • through each roll. Separate each strip slightly, curving to form a
  • fan shape. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about
  • 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove
  • from pan to a wire rack to cool. Drizzle with Vanilla Glaze. Yield:
  • 8 rolls.
